THE BOB TELMOSSE CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY: HOSTED BY MR. BIGGS
For the past 26 years, the Bob Telmossé Christmas Giveaway has given away bikes, food, toys, and clothing to families in Colorado Springs at Christmas. Originally the giveaway began as a prank. In 1982, someone placed an ad in the Gazette saying that Bob Telmosse was giving away free food from his furniture store. After a crowd gathered in his parking lot, Bob decided to hold a real giveaway. Eventually it was moved to Christmas, and over the years the giveaway has included giving away food bags and frozen turkeys, gifts for children and parents, and clothing.
